Welcome to Bainbridge Island Community Woodshop

Our all-volunteer group is dedicated to continuing the long woodworking traditions of our island in Puget Sound through education, community service, and sharing of tools and knowledge among woodworkers of all skill levels.

We are working to open a community woodshop for classes, personal projects and our community service work. In the meantime, we have an active community service program and sponsor classes through the Bainbridge Island parks and recreation department. We also arrange periodic speakers on a variety of woodworking topics.

Our members include highly skilled professionals as well as novice woodworkers. We welcome new members who are interested in learning about and sharing the fascinating pursuit of woodworking. To learn more, please email.

  • Not your typical bus shelter

    Bus shelter framing The first houses in the new Ferncliff Avenue affordable housing project are just beginning to be built, but a beautiful amenity of the neighborhood—a timberframed bus shelter—is already in place. Volunteers from Bainbridge Island Community Woodshop assembled and finished the structure in mid November, using wood from trees that had to be cleared from the site to make way for the development. Coyote Woodworks, a Bainbridge sawmill company, milled the wood, and timberframers at Salisbury Construction cut the joinery. See how the structure took shape.
